      Part of Patriot Act Ruled Unconstitutional
      By LINDA DEUTSCH, AP Special Correspondent

      LOS ANGELES - A federal judge has declared unconstitutional a portion of
      the USA Patriot Act that bars giving expert advice or assistance to
      groups designated foreign terrorist organizations.

      The ruling marks the first court decision to declare a part of the
      post-Sept. 11 anti-terrorism statute unconstitutional, said David Cole,
      a Georgetown University law professor who argued the case on behalf of
      the Humanitarian Law Project.

      An End of Evil: The twisted Worldview of Richard Perle and David Frum

      The US has invaded two countries during the course of one presidential
      term. The US government is also embarked in the most ambitious crusade
      to curtail democratic rights at home.

      There is no doubt in anyone's mind that the building of "American
      Imperium" is on at full speed.

      Perhaps the greatest challenge for those now alive is to trust that the
      neoconservatives mean precisely what they say. It is a difficult task,
      for what they are saying seems so "contradictory that nobody could carry
      it out" as the liberals used to say of Hitler's plans in the 1930s.

      Report: The right of return for Palestinians
      by Abdul-Ilah As-Saadi

      Refugees have their right to return denied by Israel

      The question of Palestinian refugees has been one of the core issues
      facing negotiators in the Middle East peace process.

      Back in 1948, the UN passed a now famous resolution, Resolution 194,
      which stated:

      "The refugees wishing to return to their homes and live at peace with
      their neighbors should be permitted to do so at the earliest practicable
      date."

      Opinion: Misleaders' Strategy Undermines Grocery Strike
      By Charles Walker

      On December 19, 2003, negotiators for the United Food and Commercial
      Workers union (UFCW), representing 70,000 southern California strikers,
      announced that that very day they had offered $350 million in
      concessions in health care costs over three years to settle the
      strike/lockout involving three major grocery chains, but the chains
      rejected the offer.

      As we said before: Bush, Cheney and Powell lied about WMDs in Iraq
      Kay Says Iraq Likely Had No Banned Arms
      By KATHERINE PFLEGER, Associated Press Writer

      WASHINGTON - The former top U.S. weapons inspector in Iraq said Sunday
      he believes Saddam Hussein (news - web sites) had no weapons of mass
      destruction before the U.S.-led invasion of Iraq. David Kay said the
      challenge for the United States now is to figure out why intelligence
      indicated that the Iraqi president did have them.
